Accident Description


Eric Roosa was reported missing after a canoe capsized on the Wallkill River near Esopus, NY. His partner got ashore and notified authorities. He was paddling with a female companion in the evening; their boat capsized near flow gates used by a nearby Central Hudson hydro plant. His body was found over a month later. Very little else is known about this accident, and anyone with more information is urged to contact the Safety Editor.
